Local from Oakland, California, USA

Must check out for a Greyhound (fresh squeezed grapefruit and vodka) or sip a tasty beer and kick back to good tunes. Local bar with great local vibe and a laid back atmosphere.

cute bar with a good vibe. they make some nice drinks too. check out trivia night on WEDs and meet some good folks (though you may want to prepare to feel dumb, some of their trivia is so random!)

bonus points, its right by the lake so you can see the pretty lights around the lake too!

Local from Oakland
First to Review

Room 389 is a superb "neighborhood bar" two blocks from my apartment, and immediately by Oakland's Lake Merritt. A diverse crowd with a range of themed evenings (M = Gypsy Jazz; T = Afro- Caribbean; W = Trivia Night); this bar also doubles as an incredible pop-up style cafe by morning/ afternoon. The cafe serves an individually crafted "pour-over" coffee from one of the best boutique coffee roasters of the entire Bay Area, Bicycle Coffee and espresso beans from another local, Roast of West Oakland. The pastries are from another local favorite, Starter Bakery, and are delicious. The delicious friendly morning neighborhood vibe carries through the afternoon with a limited sandwich menu (the grilled cheese is phenomenal) and into the late afternoon/evening with a creative cocktail menu (the "Green Bulleit" is an amazing basil & bourbon concoction from co-owner, Ben) and excellent beer selection.

The crowd is always friendly and there is often a taco food truck that pulls up for the weekends. Te decor has beautifully crafted wood and the bar is divided to have a long bar and a lounge area. This is truly one of the best bars of Oakland and a testament of the great nightlife/diversity of the neighborhood.
